Abstract:Three years of reanalysis and ground‐based observations collected at the Eastern North Atlantic (ENA) observatory are analyzed to document the properties of rain and boundary layer clouds and their relationship with the large‐scale environment during general subsidence conditions and following cold front passages. Clouds in the wake of cold fronts exhibit on average a 10% higher propensity to precipitate and higher rain‐to‐cloud fraction than cloud found in general subsidence conditions. Similarities in the se… Show more
